Kelp

Kelp is a library of Ruby helpers for Cucumber, making it easier for you to write your own step definitions built upon common webpage interactions like "follow link" or "fill in fields", and assertions like "should see" or "should not see".

Install:

$ gem install kelp

To Selenium or Not To Selenium?

I've been using Capybara with the Selenium driver for automated testing of a Rails project via Cucumber. Certain scenarios involve dealing with client-side Javascript (such as confirming a popup message before deleting a record), which is the reason I started using the Selenium driver. But I soon discovered that Selenium is slow, taking three or four times as long as the standard Rack-test driver.

Racking my brains

I'm using Cucumber and Capybara for integration testing on a web application that depends heavily on the use of subdomains. Since some features rely on client-side Javascript, some scenarios use the Selenium 2 (WebDriver) driver, while other scenarios use the regular rack-test driver.

Web Design & Development

On the surface, websites, like icebergs, are not a visually complete portrayal of the hidden mass that keeps the object afloat. As potential customers fly or sail by, you want to draw them in with a unique Visual Design and then be sure you can connect with them again. By analyzing website traffic via our web analytics module and using the information that is tracked from those visits we can help you increase the effectiveness of your site and marketing dollars. Don't let what cannot be seen keep you from a safe and profitable internet presence.

Colorado Blind Crafter

We designed this site using Ruby on Rails, along with the Spree e-commerce framework, for the purpose of selling vertical window blinds online. The site allows shoppers to customize the size, style, and hardware for each window covering, with realtime price estimates.

SHRM LINE

We redesigned this web application using Ruby on Rails, to replace a legacy MS Access system which our client found too limiting and difficult to maintain. This application is for maintaining a database of employment statistics based on a monthly survey, and generating periodic reports of the expected fluctuations in various job markets. We designed the new application using a business-driven development (BDD) approach, writing test scenarios in Cucumber prior to developing each feature.
